As described in a film magazine review,[3] a young city woman with advanced ideas marries a small town doctor, and go to live in a backwoods burg. Her irritation at the small talk and petty incidents which make up the lives of the townspeople finally culminate in her leaving home and going to work as a government clerk in Washington, D.C. After a time her husband follows her there and there is a reunion.


Box Office

According to Warner Bros records, the film earned $510,000 domestically and $46,000 foreign.[1]

Preservation status

Main Street is a lost film.[4][5][6] Warner Bros. records of the film's negative have a notation, "Junked 12/27/48" (i.e., December 27, 1948). Warner Bros. destroyed many of its negatives in the late 1940s and 1950s due to the nitrate decomposition of its pre-1933 films.
